What delegates said about the conference:

What did you find most helpful about the conference?

“Hearing how all the Church is doing gives you ideas.”

“Hearing from other co-ordinators from other churches; looking at how they have made changes and how they have got other members in their churches to take part.” “

The experience shared by Philippa about being blind and that of Tim Wood about what Through the Roof is doing to help those with special needs.”

“Personal experiences – make me feel ‘I can do that; the Through the Roof presentation; sharing good practice; supporting people with disabilities rather than special needs – needs clarification.”

“Feedback from other churches on their achievements; presenters.”
